59th Street Bridge Revisited

59th Street Bridge Reflections II
Oil on canvas
24 x 42 inches

Just finished this painting of the 59th Street Bridge, a topic I've tackled before. It was fun painting the bridge once, it was equally satisfying painting it again. Some subjects can be explored more than once, and for me, this bridge is just such a subject.

The shapes created by the reflections seemed so abstract, yet when I stepped back from the easel the bridge started to emerge. Just. Like. Magic. And painting, for me, is magic.

I'll let this new painting sit for a few days to dry and to determine if I need to do any more tweaking or touch-ups, but as of now I'm putting another notch on my painting belt.
